Campaigning a century ago!

From the Cambridge Daily News of 1909:

A gramophone meeting was held at Fen Ditton in support of the Government's
budget. Some delay was caused by the gramophone having gone wrong but Mr
S. Mallyon lent his machine. First a musical selection was rendered and
then recordings of speeches by the Prime Minister (H.H. Asquith),
Chancellor of the Exchequer (Lloyd George) and President of the Board of
Trade (Mr Winston Churchill) were heard.

Thanks to Colin Rosenstiel for this example of Liberal high tech.
